• Research interests
  • Our research focus lies on
    • the electrochemical studies of thin film electrodes for rechargeable lithium-ion and post-lithium (e.g. magnesium) batteries. Thin film approach enables to provide a fundamental understanding of the electrochemical processes, surface/interfacial phenomena and ion diffusion kinetics.

       
    • the mechanistic studies of interfacial phenomena (solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) formation and stability) responsible for internal resistance and performance fade/enhancement occurring on all-solid-state batteries and lithium-ion and post-lithium rechargeable batteries, using surface sensitive tools of ex situ / in situ ATR FTIR, Raman and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, etc. Solutions to improve battery performance, cycle life and safety are proposed.

       
    • the development of synthetic strategy and the controlled nanostructure of solid electrode and electrolyte materials utilizing soft-solution processing and electrochemical film deposition, and the studies of material property-performance relationship.

       
    • Our advanced materials design and analysis strategies based on interdisciplinary researches contribute to improve a basic understanding of electrochemical and interfacial processes occurring in energy-storage electrochemical cells and to enhance the state of battery technologies by furthering the national/international goal of operation on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and post-lithium batteries.
